    The paper considers how new technologies and standards are emerging that are set to have a dramatic effect on the design and implementation of industrial control systems. These technologies will reduce the time to bring new systems on stream, and leverage the integration of business and industrial systems. The fusion of distributed object technology, with function blocks as defined in the new IEC ... View full abstract»

    The process industries comprise the largest UK manufacturing sector, and include chemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals and food. Process control is a critical component of their success, but its application has been variable. In the future the process industries will need to become even more competitive driven by global competition. Jointly exploiting process and control will intimately change the ... View full abstract»

    The results of a survey carried out between November 1995 and March 1996 are given. The aim of the survey was to see exactly how widely software engineering techniques were being adopted in the UK today. The rationale behind the survey was simple: to see which of a selected set of software engineering techniques were being used. The techniques included in the survey were: methods and methodologies...

    Power line carrier systems, which have found applications in the USA as control data and information data networks, have also become very popular in Europe as an alternative control network for use in building, home and industrial automation applications. Several communication techniques have been developed in Europe which differ from the ones in the USA, mainly because of differing power line reg... View full abstract»
